Uma Thurman joined the #metoo campaign in a recent Instagram post that took aim at Harvey Weinstein and his “wicked conspirators”. The Kill Bill star, who had worked with Weinstein on the two-part series, as well as Pulp Fiction, advised her fans and followers to “stay tuned” in lieu of more potential news.

Thurman is one of dozens of women who have come forward against the producer after numerous allegations of rape and sexual misconduct were brought against him during the past month. Although no formal allegation was made by Thurman, the actress wrote: “I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair be exact.”

This post comes after Thurman told Access Hollywood in October that she would not comment in detail at the time: “I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.” During the red carpet interview for the film The Parisian Woman, Thurman responded to the “commendable” efforts of other actresses coming forward. Speaking of her own experience, she added, “I have learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself.”

Thurman’s post is cautious and considerate in her efforts to speak out. Weinstein, who has denied acts of non-consensual sex, was fired by the Weinstein Co. and has since been blacklisted from many professional guilds.

As we understand it, there may be more news to follow from the actress, but it would seem the star is looking for justice, not a media buzz. As part of her post she writes, “I am glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet.” In response to how others have reacted to her statements, she tweeted:
